Serving with Eyes Wide OpenJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
There is an undeniable American lens to much of this but it's unique voice to challenges is needed. It is challenging and unsettling in terms of measuring the impact of the human life. Livermore's residual take-away message for me was, "Go with humility and observe before you presume to speak!" Godly counsel for any context.
